Has anyone ever heard of this man being associated with the assassination of John F. Kennedy? He does have an interesting backround with some interesting connections but I have never seen his name mentioned with any conspiracy theories (not to be confused with his son who also had a career with the State Department).

During WWII, as an OSS operative in North Africa, he advocated the creation and training of an assassination squad to be used by the SOE and OSS for sticky political situations. Perhaps by coincidence he was in North Africa at the time of the assassination of Admiral Darlan and it was a pistol that he owned that was used in the assassination. During the late 1950's and early 1960's Coon wrote several noted educational books and papers related to the supremacy of the white/european race. He used his position as an anthropologist to aid in his work as a CIA opperative in the Middle and Near East mapping potential sites for the airforce to use for espionage overflights of the Soviet Union and China (Francis Gary Powers flew from such a site).

Just curious.

Hi Jim, until now, I never heard of Carlton Stevens Coon, though I am a bit familiar with the Darlan Affair. On the SOE - British Special Operations Executive side - was Commander Ian Fleming, British Naval Intelligence, who was assigned to Darlan early in the war. Fleming made contact with Darlan in South France during the Nazi invasion and tried to convince him to excape with the French fleet to England, but instead Darlan went to North Africa and French Morroco.

That the French fleet fought the Allies in North Africa led to many deaths due to the failure of Fleming's mission, which certainly would have justified, at least in their minds, the assassination of Darlan.

I came accross a photo of the Casablanca conferenc of Allied leaders and standing behind Churchill is a British Naval Commander who looks remarkably like Fleming, though there is no mention of his being at Casablanca in any of his biographies. That Fleming had something to do with the assassination of Darlan would be significant enough to keep his presence in Morocco off the record.

The anthropology angle is interesting too, as the British use of ornithologists (bird specialists) included Ian Fleming's brother Peter (MI6) and the real James Bond - the distinguished American ornighologist and author of the Birds of the West Indies, from whom Ian appropriated the name for his 007 secret agent.

Must start a file on CSCoon.

Regarding Morocco in 1963....A Sampling of some U.S. news stories circa 1963

February 21, 1963

President Antonio Segni To Visit Morocco

March 8, 1963

Morocco, Italian Firm Sign Oil Search Pact

October 17, 1963

Morocco Reports Fighting Spreading

Algerians Fall Back after 'Savage' Battle, Morocco's Army Says

November 1, 1963

Morocco Breaks Tie with Cuba

November 15, 1963

Morocco Shifts Nearer to West

December 26, 1963

Chou Sets Morocco Visit

If.....a picture is worth a 1000 words what are a 1000 words, worth?

So we see in the space/time continuum a dynamic of Morocco as the ostensible pawn in the Cold War between East and West, as the latter half of 1963 approaches, one can surmise that the West has the lead going into the fourth quarter......The Algeria/Morocco conflict is settled, whew thank goodness. Now the West can make plans for that special commodity known as Oil....

The U.S. Government circa 1963, always having the proverbial irons in the fire, had Morocco on the table......Quick the following individual "Nes" IS.........

Here's a quote......"Nes is soft spoken, and a little more Ivy League than I myself, like in tone and accent. He is also shrewd and knowledgeable, and while there is nothing quite like the job in Saigon, it is true that the job in Morocco was complicated and varied." See

Foreign Relations of the United States, 1961-1963, Volume IV: Vietnam August-December 1963

Current Section: 357. Memorandum From the President/Special Assistant for National Security Affairs (Bundy) to the President

Which is where the events peripheral to the JFK Assassination? may come into play

There is this well noted rumor

INVESTIGATION OF ALLEGATIONS THAT OSWALD WAS IN TANGIER: MOROCCO,

Which brings us to the followiing:

Morocco/Dallas,Texas/Oil Interests

The head of state of King Abdallah Morocco visited Dallas, TX in November of 1959,

a month later Morocco's number 2 man Prime Minister, Moulay Abdallah Ibrahim also visited Dallas, See Dallas Morning News 10-18-1959 "Moroccan Chief Seeks US Aid"

With the aid of historical hindsight there are elements of the story that are arguably humorous

"The Number two man in Morocco's government wants United States money to help develop his country's oil industry, and he flew into Dallas Saturday looking for it."

Boy did you come to the right place!!!!!!
